update on life

Life is doing better today and more stable. She made it through the transition of coming off of the ECMO machine yesterday and a lot of the swelling caused by the machine has gone down. The bleeding in her brain has not worsened (Praise God!), so we need to pray that she will have no brain damage and for healing in the bleeding that has already occurred, as well as healing for pulmonary hypertension. She has stopped "shunting" as much, which, from what I understand, has to do with her blood not being properly oxygenated.

Thanks so much to everyone for your prayers. Please continue praying for healing as well as praising God for the work He is doing and the plans He has for this precious little one!
